I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Select/detect language of reviews

    Most reviews are and will be written in English. But once public accessible this site will (hopefully) grow, so will the number of reviews and diversity of languages used to write these reviews. On a movie detail I can see 3 popular reviews in 3 different languages for example.

    Maybe an options where you can select in what language your review is written and an option (checkboxes) to select which languages you understand... and wan't to see.

  2. Integrate "Now Playing Near You!" notifications into Watchlist

    I watch tons of trailers, most of them several months in advance of the films' release. I file away the ones I want to see, but it's impossible to keep up with when and where every film hits theaters (if it hits theaters at all). So I would love it if Letterboxd could notify me when the films on my Watchlist are in theaters near me.

  3. Get rid of the People page

    You guys really need to take the People page away or modify it. For some stupid reason a lot of people are insecure about the "popularity" (or lack thereof) on this site. All the People page does, since it hardly ever changes, is basically show off who has the most followers and the most comments on their reviews (popularity, i guess?).

    maybe you could change it to show the new members or have it
    rotate every day. either of those would help alleviate this issue.

    since LB left Beta there have been a lot more members are this popularity bs…

  4. Achievements/Badges

    As with other "logging" sites badges would be nice. These badges add a bit of fun and competition to the movie watching experience. These could be badges about the content (Having watched all movies by Hitchcock, Having Watched Every Start Trek Movie...) about the amount (You have watched more then 100 movies this month, You have watched more than 1000 movies in total) or about the topic (Sci-Fi badge for watching at least 25 sci-fi movies and such things). I think it would be nice.

  7. Could you limit the amount of reviews people can like?

    No way can todd gaines read 100 reviews in two minutes.It just clogs up the activity feed and it serves no purpose other than to like reviews in the hope that the reviewers will like yours back.

  8. Ability to hide or downvote reviews

    I'm finding more and more that the top reviews for a film aren't to my taste; not for the score but how they're written - a critically reviled film seems to start an arms race on who can be the wittiest in one sentence or who can be the most over the top excited about a good film rather than go into any reason why (see the top 2 reviews for Django Unchained, as a quick example)

    I know that everyone uses the site in different ways and has alternative tastes to mine but I think several of the top…

  9. Unlisted option for lists

    It would be great to be able to make a list that I could share with friends but not have public to all my followers. Like YouTube's "unlisted" setting on videos. Not public, not private, but sharable through links? Say, a list of films we plan to watch together that I wouldn't want on my page?

  10. Group lists in folders

    I have a lot of private lists for organizing my opinions for films as well as information for my YouTube channel and Instagram, and I keep having to search through my list longer than I thought. I would really like to see folders be visible, so that folders are visible in the lists section, while lists that can stay out of folders can be visible normally in the same section. Please take this into consideration!

  12. Half-star symbol instead of "1/2"

    I would prefer if there was truly a half-star symbol instead of the "1/2" fraction following the stars in movie ratings!

  13. Search within a member’s account or list

    It would be extremely useful to be able to search for titles in certain lists, such as the top 250/other poll lists and 3rdrevelation's "youtube collection". Does this make sense?

  14. Watchlist - Who and Where

    When I add something to my Watchlist, there are two critical pieces of information I'd like to be able to include:

    1) Who told me about the movie or where did I hear about it.
    2) Where I plan to watch it.

    Examples:

    a) the Inside Streaming newsletter recommended I watch a film on Netflix. I put it in my Watchlist but over time I'll forget why I did or where I can watch it.
    b) a friend at work recommends I watch a movie he/she saw on TCM last night. When I put it in my watch list I'd…

  15. IMDB Watchlist Syncing

    I suggest you add the ability to sync watchlists in between IMDB and Letterboxd. I'm not sure if you could update IMDB, but you should be able to pull the data off of the IMDB watchlist. To sync, we would only have to enter the url of the watchlist's RSS feed.

    Here is an example of an rss feed you could pull data from:

    http://rss.imdb.com/user/ur35495296/watchlist

    Couchpotat.to uses this method.

  16. Cover Photo

    Wouldn't it be great if our profiles could have cover photos?

    This would not be unlike Facebook, Twitter, or even the film pages themselves; every user would now just have the ability to post their own (hopefully film related) images for their covers. Heck, even if it's not film related, perhaps it would allow for some further insight into the mind of each user, and would provide an overall more enjoyable experience as clicking through reviews, likes, etc.

    Just a thought!

    Cover photos are available for Patron members of the site. They are taken from the backdrop of the first of your four favorites (if available). Let us know if you’re a Patron and your favorite film is missing an image.

  17. Add TV shows?

    Seems like a natural addition. Website keeps growing. Why not expand to add television shows? Have them as a separate category so they don't mix in with film ratings?

  19. Support spoiler tags within a review/list/comment to indicate partial spoilers

    It would be great if it was possible to only put a spoiler warning on part of a review. That way, people who haven't seen the movie can read part of the review instead of not being able to read any of it, just because there is ONE spoiler in the review.

  20. View multiple tags at once

    Allow a user to see a list movies that match multiple tags. E.g.: I want to see all 'bluray' movies I 'watched in 2011'.
